Publisher's Summary

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children will profoundly alter us forever.

Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book you have ever read. This is not a “how-to” book that teaches you ways to discipline your kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us.

You’ve read all the method books. Now take a step back and receive some much-needed inspiration. You’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent—and how their children transformed their relationship with God. Sacred Parenting affirms the spiritual value of being a parent, showing you the holy potential of the parent-child relationship.

good parenting book

Has good values and principles. I recommend it to all parents, who just began this journey or going for quite a bit )))) This book makes us think about some good points. And challenges to be a better, God - centered parent.

Super valuable

As a parent who recognizes the challenge of parenting but isn't overwhelmed by it, I wasn't sure how much I'd get from this book, but my wife wanted to share this with me, and I'm so glad she's did. I especially value the emphasis on our responsibility, first and foremost, to introduce our children to God and how to use almost everything, every day, to accomplish that goal. This is a masterful book.

Super Christ-focused encouragement for weary Dad

Recommend to all parents. Liked the spiritual insight which was broadly applicable as well as specifically applied to parenting.

Best book I've ever read.

All parents should read this! If I didn't have a stack of books lined up that I want to read next, I would instantly re-read this one. I will for sure revisit this again. ♡♡♡ What a blessing. Thank you Mr. Thomas. :)

Amazing book!!

My son's grandmother got it for me when I became a new mum, I didn't get time to read obviously, so I got the audio book. I'm glad it was the first parenting book I read (listened to) Gary Thomas has provided some insights I would have never thought of. This book has framed my way of entering into the world of parenting with realistic expectations, confidence in God's providence for myself and my family, spitually and otherwise.
